Department of Theatre, Cinema & Dance

Theatre Program

The Bachelor of Arts program in theatre and cinema is one of only a handful in the United States and the only one in the region. We provide students with an outstanding professional training and hands-on experiences that will prepare them for a successful career in the entertainment industry.

This Bachelor of Arts degree offers an outstanding integration of both cinema and theatre. Students decide which field to specialize in – theatre, musical theatre, or cinema – but will gain experience and knowledge in all three.

Each course in this program provides students with the professional training necessary to develop technical, creative and storytelling skills, allows them the opportunity to focus and hone those skills, and provides the environment in which they can discover and explore their own expressive voice.

Our graduates go on to successfully pursue master’s degrees in their respective fields and/or seek careers as actors, designers, editors, directors, cinematographers, audio engineers and more. Our degree programs give students the edge in today’s competitive job market.
